Integration of Trade Services for Dislocated Workers: A Comprehensive Guide

Part C-400 — Core Services

C-400.1:

Sequence of

Services

Structure

Follow the WIA Sequence of Services when serving eligible Tradecertified

workers who request assistance. The sequence is:

Core > Intensive > Training

The Trade Act of 1974, as amended (Trade Act), establishes certain

time frames for decisions concerning suitable employment and

referrals to training. These timelines affect the participant’s

eligibility for TRA benefits. The case manager must be aware of

these deadlines at all times. For example, the Trade-certified

worker will remain in core services only until Workforce Center

staff determines whether suitable work is available.

All customers (Universal Population) who enter the Workforce

Center have access to core services.

• Boards must obtain preregistration data from customers

(including Trade-certified) who receive core services. Use the

Specialized Services intake level in TWIST to capture the

information. This data collection is strongly encouraged,

because it allows TWC and Boards to track the core services

provided.

• Boards can use WIA and Employment Service funds to provide

core services.

Note: For details regarding documentation requirements, refer to

the WIA Guidelines for Determining WIA Eligibility, available

at http://www.twc.state.tx.us/boards/wia/txwia.html.
